As the Beast from the East, the worst storm to hit the UK in decades, raged outside; inside in the unstoppably exciting Lola’s Casino – nothing was going to rain on our parade!
Thank you so much to everyone who made it through the crazy weather conditions, you are troopers! And to those who were completely snowed in, you were missed – you know who are you!
Greeting us at the door was a marvellous 808 Whisky Caipirinha, providing a welcoming perk-up on arrival.
Over in the casino we had two private Learn-to-Play tables with Roulette and Blackjack to tempt the players and the gamblers.
808’s Brand Ambassador Andy led a tasting of 808 Whisky, so soft it was our ladies that were leading the fan club – and such an entertaining club they were that Andy stayed for the duration of the night – way to go ladies!
Psychic Love Coach Alison Chan Lung, had a queue back as far as the Whisky Bar and was an absolute hit. I’d love to be a fly on the wall to hear her predictions!
We feasted on delicious canapes including USDA Beef Sliders, Vegetable Spring Rolls, Smoked Salmon Blinis, Croquettes with Parma ham and my personal favourite Goats Cheese Lollipops. Yum!
We were all given a £50 token to go and play in the main casino, so tactile those poker chips, we all felt like the real gambling deal.
Thank you Hippodrome for being such five star professionals throughout the night – very impressive indeed, we look forward to coming back next year!
